The Wild Goose Journal

Fr. Dave Pivonka

Discover the Holy Spirit Anew
The Holy Spirit desires a relationship with us that will take us on the greatest adventure imaginable; a journey to the very heart of God. This book is meant to act as a journal for this adventure. In the first section of this journal, you will find a guide for The Wild Goose series. This guide will be a reference for discussion and reflection on the topics covered in each segment. Throughout the rest of this journal you will find space to write your thoughts, prayers, and any promptings of the Holy Spirit. This journal is not meant just to be a guide for the series but a place where you can keep an account of your journey with the Wild Goose.

Whether you are currently watching, are just about to start, or have already finished the series, this journal is an excellent tool to assist you in discovering a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Why the Name: “The Wild Goose”
The “Wild Goose” was a term that the ancient Celts had for the Holy Spirit. Yes, there is a wildness to the Holy Spirit. The dominant images of the Holy Spirit are a meek dove or a flickering flame of a candle, both of which are in one way accurate. But the Holy Spirit is far more than that.

About the Presenter

Dave has held several ministry positions at Franciscan University of Steubenville and is actively involved in the highly successful summer conferences program.

Who Am I to Judge? Responding to Relativism with Logic and Love

Who Am I to Judge? Responding to Relativism with Logic and Love

Discussing moral issues with family and friends can be a challenge in a culture that strongly promotes the idea that there is no objective truth. Speaking from a wealth of personal experience, renowned author and theologian Dr. Edward Sri provides 5 “keys” to enable Christians to oppose with logic and love what Pope Benedict XVI called the “dictatorship of relativism.” He also clarifies the proper understanding of what it means to judge, and the importance of making good judgments.

 

This talk not only helped me understand what relativism is, but more importantly it gave me simple, practical ways to defend against it. Rowena - NSW, Australia

About the Series
The Wild Goose series is fourteen independent segments dealing with different experiences of the Holy Spirit.

After that, ask the Spirit to lead you in what to watch next and go with that.

7 Big Myths About The Catholic Church

7 Big Myths About The Catholic Church

The Roman Catholic Church has long been the target of suspicion and hostility. But how much of this is based on ignorance and prejudice and how much is the fruit of thoughtful consideration of the facts?

This book separates fact from fiction. Without excusing or justifying wrongdoing, author Christopher Kaczor clarifies official Catholic teaching and demonstrates that much popular opinion about Catholicism is based on misunderstanding and misinformation. He also provides robust and lucid arguments for Catholic belief and practice.

No one book can answer everyone’s questions or objections about Catholicism, but this work examines seven of the most controversial and common myths about the Catholic Church.

Topics include:
• The Church Opposes Science
• The Church Hates Gays
• The Church Hates Women
• The Church Opposes Same-Sex Marriage Because of Bigotry
• Priestly Celibacy Caused the Crisis of Priestly Pedophilia

Fatima for Today

Fatima for Today

Click here to read a sample of the book.

Though the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima took place almost a hundred years ago, Our Lady’s call to prayer and penance for the salvation of souls and peace in the world is as relevant now as when first delivered to three Portuguese peasant children in 1917.

At the peak of World War I, Our Lady warned us of another possible worldwide conflict, the rise and spread of Communism, and a terrible persecution of the Church, unless people repented of their sins and returned to God. She also requested devotion to her Immaculate Heart and a special consecration of Russia.

Much of what Our Lady of Fatima said was revealed soon after her appearances, but the third and final “secret,” which was not a message but a prophetic vision seen by the children, was not unveiled by the Vatican until 2000. Pope John Paul II, who read the third secret while recovering from the attempt upon his life in 1981, believed the vision signified the sufferings the Church had endured in the twentieth century.

Because of the prophetic nature of her messages, the story of Our Lady of Fatima has been the subject of much controversy and speculation. In his book, Fr. Andrew Apostoli, an acclaimed expert on Fatima, carefully analyzes the events and messages at Fatima and clears up lingering questions and doubts about their meaning. He also challenges the reader to hear anew the call of Our Lady to prayer and sacrifice, for the world is ever in need of generous hearts willing to make reparation for those in danger of losing their way to God.

About the Author:

Fr. Andrew Apostoli, C.F.R., a founding member of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, has been teaching and preaching retreats and parish missions for several decades. He is considered one of the world’s foremost experts on the apparitions at Fatima. He is the author of numerous books, including Following Mary to Jesus and Walk Humbly with Your God. Fr. Apostoli is the vice-postulator for the cause of the canonization of Archbishop Fulton Sheen. A frequent host on EWTN, he hosted the TV special “Our Lady of Fatima and the First Saturday Devotion”.
